Casa LH, by OOIIO Arquitectos.

Casa LH is a single family home project designed by OOIIO Architecture in Las Herencias, a small town in the province of Toledo with quiet streets and friendly family life.

Our project pretends to adapt to that place in a discreet way and without constructive excesses that can suppose a rupture or strong contrast.

The detached house built between two party walls is solved by creating five naves perpendicular to the street that contain the entire program. Three of them are finished with simple pitched roofs and two with flat roofs, all of them interspersed with each other.

In this way we get the modular appearance of the single family home, giving the feeling that we are facing a house much smaller than it really is, and thus getting friendlier and following a more human scale.

The structure consists of load-bearing walls and the whole program is solved in a single plant, to make the project more comfortable and economical.

Studying the site, we caught the attention the brick lattices that have the agricultural buildings of the environment. The landscape of Las Herencias is dotted with old discarded tobacco dryers, which unfortunately disappear little by little.

We could not resist the temptation to include some memory of these lattices as a tribute to these constructions in our project.

We hope you like it!
